Life


In life I have learned that
Crying doesn't help
Depending on people doesn't help either
But I assure you
Standing up and doing things for yourself is even better!

Though sometimes we seek but cannot find
Though sometimes we knock but no doors open
Though sometimes we ask but receiveth not
Though sometimes we work but no pay
That doesn't mean we must give up

People say life is a journey, enjoy it
Some say life is a game, play it
But I say.....
Life is a test, make sure you pass it

Sometimes we fail
Sometimes we think the pressure is too much to handle
Sometimes we feel like we've had it and want no more
But that is no reason for us to stop believing in ourselves and give up!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
